Raw vs. boiled vegetables?

I use to blend raw vegatables in a blender, but will it be more digestable and beneficial for the gut if I boil them before I blend them?
Cooking the vegetables does reduce some of the nutrients, but I have a hard time with raw veggies. I believe steaming them is better to not affect the nutrition as much and should make them more digestable.
